Join us for a Pre-Inventory Blow Out Sale!

Starting December 26th through December 30th.
Help us make room for the new product that we'll be ordering next month. We have many newly reduced items on SALE! Many Basic Grey lines, some Creative Imaginations, all of Daisy D's and Foofala! And Clearance papers at 20 cents each.

We have pulled many items off the shelves and put them on sale. We'll have a Flea Market section at the front of the store with many found items that have been hidden on shelves, in drawers, and boxes.

If you are in the market for a Cricut machine we have one (barely used). It comes with three cartridges, a tool kit, and several mats. It's got a very "special" price on it!

Say Goodbye to 2008 and Hello to 2009 with a SALE!

When you come in during our Pre-Inventory Blow Out Sale with your printed email and spend fifty dollars and over, we'll give you five dollars off. If you spend one hundred dollars or more, we'll give you an additional ten dollars off. In other words, for every fifty dollars spent you'll get an additional five dollars off. Imagine all the savings just for you!

There's a whole lot of shakin' going on...

Things are always shakin' around here at Mystic Paper, especially when we need to make room for new product! The last time we did some major renovating was actually last December, so it's about time to do it again isn't it? The one thing about moving almost everything in the store is the learning curve of where did we put that? But we really have to because next month is the Craft & Hobby Industry's trade show where we will be purchasing many new and exciting items.

Here's how things go when we do this. First we have to move product that we are wanting to either discontinue or put on sale, but before we do that we have to move something else. Sometimes we start at the front of the store, sometimes the middle, and sometimes the back.
The new year is coming and it's time for some changes. We wanted to open up the front of the store to add more stamps and inks for everyone. So that means moving something from the front of the store to the back. The following photos may explain the last 3 days here at Mystic Paper. Sometimes it doesn't start with much.

Then Jennifer adds some things and makes Kim do a lot of moving stuff. You know heavy lifting stuff, like furniture.

Then more and more things follow and it just kind of works.

Here's a corner that desperately needed some change.

Ahhhhh, so much better, now it's open and inviting. Oh yes, and prettier.

Some of the newly rearranged walls areas.

Now that we have almost moved everything in the store, if you can't find what you are looking for just ask us. The tricky thing will be remembering where we moved it to!

Just in time for Christmas...

We have more of these gorgeous "Where Women Create" magazines left, but they are not staying around for long. If you've been wanting one, you'd better hurry in~ or put it on your Christmas list for the Hubby to come pick up for you.

Have a great weekend!

It Must B Cold...

At least it's cold enough in Arizona for Jeff our UPS guy to wear his LONG pants again! You all know what that means don't ya? You will all have to start thinking about when Jeff will show up in shorts again. We can't even remember when he started wearing shorts again, but you can bet we'll have another contest to guess!
We were very busy today putting all of the product Jeff brought to us away. Just look at all the goodies!

Tons of restocked Christmas necessities~ Cosmo Cricket papers and chipboard.

Tim Holtz New Christmas stamps!

New and restocked Tim Hotlz Idea-ology Metals and Masks.

If you were waiting for us to get some UTEE back in...it's baaack, in clear, red and white. And we have more Utee Flex to throw in your Melting Pot. And if you don't have one of those yet, we've got those too!

And of course those essentials that we can't seem to keep in the store are back too. Craft sheets, Glossy Accents, and Blending Solution.

Still looking for that last minute Christmas gift?

This bracelet is a great gift. It can be a handmade gift from you or you can put it in her stocking and let her craft it herself! Links can be removed for those tiny wrists and then used as a pendant for a necklace. We've got lots of great gift ideas and gift certificates. And guys, we love to help you shop!

Saturday's Happenings...

There was a lot going on~ like painting and creating and such.

This group was the happiest class ever! There was so much laughter coming from that room. We think someone suggested a stand up comedy scrapbook evening. Seriously, they were so loud while they were working that we could hear them all the way up the stairs to the front of the store! It makes us happy when everyone in the class has such a great time.

We even had two out of town guests. This is Suzanne from Tennessee. And Maya was visiting from Serbia again. Look! This is Suzanne working on her tags. Go Suzanne go.

This is the adorable finished book that everyone created in Caroline's "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" class. FUN!

We are without phone today...

Because of this company.

So if you need to contact us today, you can call Kim's cell 602-300-1509 or email us!
Kim@mysticpaper.com or jennifer@mysticpaper.com.

Soap Box: So, in the future we recommend not doing any business with this company, they put us through a lot of stressful days without phone, or internet. And all because we were going to switch phone services, but then we couldn't because of our wireless server. Then we had to cancel and they didn't switch our phone number back. SHEESH!
